Color your Lab
- Easy operation through web browsers
- Expandable control system with optional extra inputs and outputs
- Enhanced parallel processing by allowing up to 8 my-Controllers in one human interface
The selectable colored band on the unit allows the system to be personalized and to fit your laboratory. The advanced my-Control software makes it possible to switch from microbial to cell culture configuration in seconds. With its footprint of only 19 by 35 cm (W x D) it uses the minimal amount of bench space, allowing to set up as many as 5 on 1 m width of bench space.
The my-Control provides full control of all bioprocess parameters, including pH, temperature, dissolved oxygen, RedOx, agitation, foam, and level. It has USB connections for optional balances, Biomass, Fluorophor pH and DO sensors.
It is based on the same familiar Getinge Applikon control platform as the other controllers.
Advanced control strategies
The my-Control comes with selectable autotuning adaptive PID control for accurate control when process conditions change during the culture.
It has extended liquid additions options tuned to small scale cultivation via up to 4 variable speed pumps at the front of the controller. And it comes with enhanced gas addition strategies via 4 mass flow controllers.
Easy operation through web
The built-in web server allows the my-Control to be operated by any computer with a web browser: Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari or Google Chrome. Wireless devices like iPad, iPhone or Android tablets or phones can also be used to operate a my-Control.
Via the built-in web server enhanced parallel processing is accessible which allows user to control multiple (up to 8) bioreactors in parallel.
